When compiling a record, there are two things you ought to consider: firstly, what do you want to show; secondly, and, in my opinion, the one that really matters, what the others wish to hear. In the blink of eye, you are right on the edge of a precipice.
Understanding the others’ wishes has always been a strenuous task for me; however, when ultimately a decision had to be made, I’ve always relied on my emotions and never on my rationality. So, the line-up of this compendium, fully dedicated to the experimental music made in Portugal, came straight from the heart. (I know this sounds a bit corny, but one thing history has taught me is that emotions never go out of style, as for a thought, that’s hardly been true…)
Without any further delay, Wasser Bassin proudly presents: The Astonishing Urbana Fall, Mute Life Dept., Dancin’ Days in a truly danceable edit for The Legendary Tiger Man, Tropa Macaca, Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzp!, Unknown Artist, Sensible Soccers and Golden Cup: a random selection of tracks from the 90’s till the present day.
First volume… Others will follow!
